Marshmallow squares | Vegan-Gluten free | YouTube
Uppdaterat: 10 mars 2021
Hello my lovelies! This month has a lot to do with nostalgia. I was gaming with my brother and a fond memory of him baking popped into my head and one specific recipe that he made that I haven't had in forever came to mind first which are "skumrutor" marshmallow squares. They are soft and pillowy, sweet and the hint of cocoa powder and coconut adds a lovely flavour and texture. I of course wanted to make these vegan and was happy that my adjustment worked out and I can't wait to share this recipe with all of you wonderful Shadefooders!
Makes around 10-12 squares.
What you need for marshmallow: 4 1/2 dl sugar 3 3/4 dl icing sugar 1 1/2 dl water 1 1/2 dl aquafaba For thickening: 3-4 tbsp agar agar 2 dl water for boiling 16–20 squares What you need for coating: 3–4 dl coconut flakes 1-2 tbsp cacao powder 2 tsp vanilla sugar
You can follow along in my video below.
Begin with mixing sugar, icing sugar and aquafaba and the cold water in a bowl, I prefer using my kitchen machine for this. In a pot bring the water for thickening up to a boil and then add the agar agar and mix until it begins to thicken. Pour the thickening agent into the aquafaba mixture and mix until it becomes white and fluffy resembling a meringue. While it is mixing we will add the following ingredients into a bowl; coconut flakes, cacao and vanilla sugar. Give it a mix until it all looks well incorporated.
Place a baking sheet into a baking tray and evenly coat the bottom with less than half of the cacao coating. Once the marshmallow mixture looks nice and fluffy transfer it into the baking tray and evenly spread it out once it looks even cover the top of the marshmallow with the cacao leave some for later so we can cover the edges. Place the baking tray in the fridge for a couple of hours so it can set and becomes more solid. Once it has solidified transfer the marshmallow out of the tray using the baking sheet and slice it into even square pieces. Dip the edges of the squares into the cacao so all the sides are covered. Now they are ready to serve! Keep in the fridge if not eaten immediately.
